We are seeing plenty of maps and stats on social media chatter following the big news yesterday. Not knowing what else to do (other than follow the news), I made this quick and dirty map. I used Jeremy White’s twitter-hitter program to collect geolocated tweets mentioning the town (#abbottabad or #abbottābād) where US forces found Osama bin Laden. The data was collected during the 8 hours following President Obama’s speech. White dots are tweets; gray dots are Natural Earth populated places. If nothing else, this map confirms that people in the US were up through the night tweeting about this now-(in)famous place.
